goopy eyes

My dog developed goopy eyes with a little redness to the whites. Mild wheezing once was heard. What should I do

Sounds like your dog has some seasonal allergies going on--lots of pollen this year, so lots of allergies.

Do you have sterile saline wash in the house? Don't use contact lens cleaning solution--just sterile saline. You can rinse her eyes with the saline to sooth them and wash out some of the allergens. If the redness persists or gets worse or if the goopiness increases, you should have her checked out at the vet. And certainly if you hear the wheezing again, you should get her to a vet as soon as you can.
